Deep enough to drown in

Starlight,
but no scope.

We don’t see if we don’t look
can’t read a book unless we open it,
and
hoping it changes never changed a thing.

‘Might’ is the most powerful of words to use
it might mean anything, nothing or everything,
we could all use a ‘might’ I might use one too.

I think
not always
only now and again
blinking on and off,
I am
binary code on an
unmarked road
just
starlight
but no scope.
